In a world where even midrange devices commanded $300-$400 unlocked, Motorola's game-changer debuted at just $179. It brought much of the pocketability and visual appeal of the contemporaneous first-gen Moto X, and thanks to the ...

    What can you buy for $96 now a days? If you're thinking about smartphones, the most that'll get you is a cheap Lumia, or a very cheap-looking Android phone in some cases. That last thing you'd expect to buy with it is a full-fledged smartphone that could give the Moto G a run for its money, but that's exactly what Meizu ...

    Back around the start of the year, Google dropped a pretty exciting update to its already impressive Google Translate app, adding both a real-time dictated translation mode and one that worked with your phone's video camera to instantly translate printed text - live as you filmed it.

    Even though Sony has been rather sluggish at product announcements this year, the company has managed to launch a few flagships that we've already reviewed. That said, we recently came across some documents that reveal a Sony Xperia C5 Ultra in the works, and super-slim bezels were just part of the news. If you thought ...

    A Google account acts as the gatekeeper for so many of the company's services, there's a good chance you probably have one (if not more) registered: maybe you're a die-hard Gmail user, or maybe you only signed up when you got your new Android phone.

    Ok, I promise, this is the last time I talk about my vacation - which was freakin' great, bee tee dubs. But as I mentioned in a previous article, I found myself in a difficult situation – I had the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and I was out on the town for 11 days straight. Battery life was an issue pretty much every day I ...

    Samsung smartphones are becoming better and better at taking pictures. There's no way around it, the Note 4 (and soon the Galaxy Note 5), Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 Edge are exceptional shooters (yes, there are some GS6 and GS6 Edge models that are powered by a Sony chip).

For the time being I've switched to the LG G4 with the Qi wireless charging hack Michael Fisher told you about.

    While Motorola is trying something new with the Moto X this year, splitting the phone into the Moto X Style phablet flagship and the more dialed-back Moto X Play, the new Moto G is very much a refresh of last year's model.
